In honor of National Egg Day, June 3rd, who better to chat with than the Brunchnista herself, Michelle Sprott!Michelle Sprott’s evolution into the independent, street smart, sophisticated woman she is today began in the Big Apple. The Brooklyn-bred beauty met her rites of passage in one of the most multicultural cities of the world and emerged with a keen sense of community. She carried that sense with her to Huntsville, Alabama and back, earning her BS in Biology from the historically Black Oakwood University. Michelle is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Passionate about young women and education, she has dedicated her time and talents to organizations like Teach for America, Everybody Wins, and The Fresh Air Fund, where she continues to empower and advocate change in young people’s lives.  Amongst friends and family Michelle is the go-to for all things beauty, fashion and brunch. A connoisseur of beauty products, she earned her stripes at noteworthy brands like Vincent Longo, MAC and Make Up For Ever. Dubbed “Brunchnista” by her besties due to her never-ending pursuit of the best in brunch, Michelle’s return to New York birthed the concept of brunch as more than a merger of meals, but as a behavior. “Brunch isn’t confined to one table,” Michelle clarifies. “I can brunch with different sets of friends all day Sunday. It’s about great food, laughs and connection.”When she’s not brunching, beautifying or being of service, she’s quenching her thirst for exploration; traveling to some of the world’s most exotic locations including Thailand, Greece, Bali, and South Africa.Top Brunch Spot Recommendations:Sugarcane Raw Bar + GrillCourt of Two SistersFull list of Brunch HacksConnect with Michelle: @brunchnista  brunchnista@brunchnista.comDon’t forget to subscribe, rate, review and share with at least 3 people who would enjoy or benefit from this conversation!

First solo episode in a while. Addressing a listener question from a previous episode: "When does normal anxiety become an anxiety disorder?" and then my two cents on minding our mental health and keeping the "should" to ourself.  I don't know about you, but I've had people tell me what I should and should not be stressed or anxious about. I've had people tell me that because things could be worse, my current circumstances didn't warrant discontent or my level of frustration. This episode is to remind you and them that we all have unique triggers and stressors and everyone needs to mind their own mental health and keep their "should" to themself. In honor of the last week of mental health, lets take the time to be more thoughtful and compassionate about how we respond to people in their time of need, even when we can't relate or understand.Don’t forget to subscribe, rate, review and share with at least 3 people who would enjoy or benefit from this conversation!

Jennifer Vassel is the author and founder of “I Am Unique!” - a children’s book series and self-love brand aimed to inspire girls and women to rise above their insecurities and share their unique gifts with the world. The book stemmed from her own childhood insecurity of having a birthmark. Jennifer’s interest in entrepreneurship piqued when she heard a life-changing sermon on New Year’s Eve 2012. In 2014, she published her debut book entitled, “My Channeled Energy” - a collection of poems and short stories written over a span of 20 years. It became an Amazon #1 Bestseller in two categories. Her main focus now is building the I Am Unique! brand. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Black Enterprise, and Today. “I Am Unique!” has touched the lives of children across the U.S. and internationally - reaching places like France, the Philippines, United Kingdom, and Kenya. What Jennifer's most proud of, though, is being able to inspire others to tap into their natural gifts and live life with purpose and intention.
